Paul Joseph Watson, one of the leading contributors to Infowars, raised his voice in protest and warning: "Facebook has permanently BANNED Infowars. For unspecified 'hate speech.'" Let me share with you some recent examples of Facebook and Twitter and YouTube coming against conservative speech. You can draw your own conclusions.
It's true that socialist Bernie Sanders is anything but a millennial. And it's true that socialism was popular long before any millennials were born. But there's no doubt that socialism is becoming increasingly popular among young people today. Why?
There is a civil war looming in Israel, but very few are talking about it. I'm not referring to the potential of a civil war between Israelis and Palestinians.
Revoice was not a place for theological debate. It was billed as a place where people who identify as LGBTQ and Christian can share their viewpoints and find "consensus."
It is true that an ugly anti-Bible tide is rising in America. It is true that many conservative believers – in particular Christian – have been discriminated against, be it by the IRS or by the social media giants. And it is true that there is a growing hostility against our beliefs on university campuses and in places of business. But let's not wallow and complain as if we are helpless and defeated.
Did you know that Jesus was a rabbi, not a reverend? Did you know that the big controversy in the early Church was not whether Jews could follow Yeshua and remain Jewish but whether Gentiles had to become Jews to follow Him?
It's good to see that Rep. Keith Ellison's shocking letter to Amazon, calling for blatant censorship, has been removed from his website. But has he publicly renounced his letter, both in spirit and in substance?
What do you do when the biblical text is against your position, explicitly so? What do you do when not one single verse supports your viewpoint? It's simple. You create new verses out of thin air. You rewrite the Bible to your liking.
I earnestly hope and pray that every child and adult struggling with gender identity issues will find wholeness, peace, and happiness from the inside out. At the same time, I wholeheartedly oppose the transgender revolution and predict that, ultimately, it will fail. Here's why.
From accusations of "treason" to blunt assessments that, "The President of the United States made a fool of himself in his meeting in Helsinki on Monday with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin," the majority consensus is that Putin won and Trump lost.
Shame has been dying for many years now – a slow and painful death.
There are plenty of things followers of Jesus cannot learn from Donald Trump. That is self-evident. But there are things he can teach us, especially those of us in leadership.
The major reason we voted for Trump in large numbers was because we hoped he would keep his word about Supreme Court nominees. And we voted for him because we were voting against Hillary, which leads us to reflect on this stark reality: Had Hillary been elected, President Obama would probably have been able to get his pick for the Court, namely, Merrick Garland, while Hillary would be making her first pick now. The implications for America's future – at least for the next 30-40 years – are massive.
A British doctor has committed the unpardonable sin. He is guilty of medical heresy. He dared to affirm that sex is biologically determined. Yes, that was his terrible transgression.
I heard a tragic story recently, some of the very bad fruit coming from Rob Bell's book Love Wins.
We hear this on a daily, if not hourly basis. Evangelicals have hurt their witness by voting for Trump. Evangelicals have lost their credibility by supporting Trump. Evangelicals can no longer be taken seriously because they're in bed with Trump. And on and on it goes. This has almost become the new orthodoxy: Prove your allegiance to Jesus by denouncing Trump.
For the first time, after more than 35 thousand tweets, Twitter has locked my account. Why? Because I told the truth about radical Islam and I told the truth about the slaughter of Christians in Nigeria. How did this violate Twitter's guidelines?
Babies are being hacked to death. Children kidnapped. Women raped and savaged. Young and old burned alive. Houses destroyed, livestock plundered. Muslim herdsmen are massacring their Christian neighbors while the Nigerian media misreports and the Nigerian government refuses to act. Some even claim the government is complicit in these attacks.
Please. Can we show some restraint and demonstrate some civility in the aftermath of the latest mass shooting in our country? This is not about Trump. This is not about Democrats or Republicans. This is not even about gun control.
Within hours of Justice Kennedy announcing his imminent retirement, voices on the left began announcing the imminent overturning of Roe v. Wade.
How should we evaluate the Supreme Court's decision to send back Barronelle Stutzman's case to the Washington Supreme Court? Did they merely punt the case farther down the field? Or is this another victory for religious rights?
Charles Krauthammer's passing was made even more poignant in light of the letter he penned shortly before his death. His clear words before leaving this world were a testament to his courage and character. His passing also gives us pause to revisit the question of the meaning of conservatism.
Rep. Waters, are you sure want this kind of America? Are you sure you want this new civil war (or, should I say, new war on civility)?
The technique is proven and effective. Put a moving, highly effective, propagandistic photo on the front page (or cover) of your story. Cause a moral outrage in the public. Then, several days (or even weeks) later, print a retraction somewhere in the middle of your publication where few will find it: "We regret publishing a picture with a misleading caption." It works like a charm!
One of the most common objections I hear to biblical morality is short, succinct, and to the point: "It's 2018!" In other words, "How can you believe in such outdated values in this day and age?" But do morals change the way technology changes?
